The madness surrounding the drama of Super Bowl continues, as Cardi B has reportedly stated that she won’t be performing at next year’s, to stand by in solidarity with exiled quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Cardi B was at first demanding US $6 million to perform ‘Girls Like You’ with the band currently set to headline Maroon 5 at the event, but according to Rolling Stone, it is likely that she will be declining any proposals to perform in order to support Kaepernick.
Her representatives have reportedly denied any rumours of Cardi B asking for money and wants her own set for the Super Bowl. “There was never a firm offer to begin with for a performance,” her representatives said. “There [were] talks about it, but she was not particularly interested in participating because of how she feels about Colin Kaepernick and the whole movement.”
This turn of events follow the drama that has been circulating the search for more acts to perform for what used to be the most coveted gig in the music world. After Rihanna had made the first decline, it was difficult to follow after. Maroon 5 themselves are extremely torn about their decision to perform for the event.
Cardi B has already confirmed to do a set with Bruno Mars that weekend at a different event.
